Aside from the part where the cap is /3 which is ~30%, as is what the tooltip states your max to be... yes you have it correct. It's divided by 3 (likely 3.33 really) in order to max out your penetration at %30 of a mob's armor. So roughly 400ish armor penetration will cap your ability to penetrate a L83 mob. This is COMBINED with Sunder and other armor reducing things, so you're going to get more from less if someone else is debuffing the armor of your target as well as your gear doesn't appear to be able to hit the full %30. Whether this is as useful as adding to haste or other stats... that's a different discussion. I think this does in fact prove that armor pen isn't useless on your gear, but you still aren't going to want to gem for it.
